The 2019 Rux World Tour finds us back in North America, to visit the home-turf of Carson Storch in Oregon, USA. The Rux World Tour represents an SR Suntour tradition of bringing together riders from around the world for the shared experience of riding, exploring new zones, and product testing. In this edition, we explore some incredible developing zones along the Pacific Coast, and then travel to Carson's home town of Bend, to shred some classic local spots and Carson’s evolving backyard.

Despite the stormy weather, our few days of exploring new zones on the Oregon coast proved to be amazing. The lush green canopy and loamy dirt provided near perfect conditions with just enough slick to keep everyone on their toes. The incredible amount of potential for year-round riding in this area had us immediately scheming our return.

 Glad someone with industry/media backing is involved building on the Oregon Coast. The amount of terrain, elevation, dirt, and access from logging roads is insane. Steep dh/tech stuff is what Oregon is missing, and we keep losing builders and riders to Washington. There's secret spots around the state for it, but secrecy isn't great for the scene. Fingers crossed the TORTA trails are slanted towards progressive riding. The last thing we need are more beginner trails that go for distance instead of fun.

 Poor little Oregon. It's got everything, but maintains a B- average. Let's put some loggers back to work on our forests and build trails Washington is envious of.

 Does anyone know when these trails will go public, or if their are any directions to where they are?

 Anyone know which vertical hitch bike rack that was that they had mounted the bikes away from the car? It seems like a North Shore Rack that they mounted the bikes backwards...

 It's a Lolo Rack. It holds the bikes from the bars instead of the fork crown or tire. I have one and it works great.
